Comparison between Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag

Virender Sehwag is often compared with Sachin Tendulkar in terms of their aggressive batting style. Even they look very similar in terms of their physical stature. However, Sehwag recently said that he was not half as good as Sachin Tendulkar, dismissing all those comparisons with living legend Sachin Tendulkar. However, both Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag are well-known for dominating the opponent bowlers and they have huge fan following for their hard-hitting batting style.

Cricketnext reported:

In his interview that made so much cricket news, Sehwag was asked what was it about Tendulkar that he wished he had. To this he replied, “Everything. And it’s just not about his unique style of batting. It is his humility, his entire persona. I really feel his records will never be broken. For somebody to do it, he would not only need the talent and longevity but also a rare luck with injuries. And that still might not be enough…… The equations you need to have in your favour to get past his 83 international centuries and nearly 30,000 runs (and still counting) are nearly impossible.”

Tendulkar is the leading run scorer in both test and ODI cricket with highest centuries in both forms of cricket. Sehwag is the only Indian who has triple century in test cricket. So, both the batsmen have given enough to Indian cricket. So, both of them are great batsmen.
